Fifth-ranked Rockets roll in SCC opener

EDDYVILLE — After suffering the first two losses of its spectacular volleyball season thus far, fifth-ranked (2A) Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont responded in a big way by rolling in a long-awaited South Central Conference opener.

Karlie Taylor dominated at the net, drilling 23 kills on 30-35 hitting while also serving up a team-high four aces as the Rockets rolled past Clarke in an easy three-game home sweep Tuesday night. EBF won 25-12, 25-17 and 25-13 over the Indians to open SCC action at 1-0.

“We played a solid match. We were dominate on offense as well as serving,” EBF head volleyball head coach Gladys Genskow said. “The girls controlled the match well going into this night with a new line up. You never know how change will go and it went better than expected. I’m proud of how they adapted and worked together.

“We will work to better ourselves in those new positions and keep pressing forward to improve in all aspects of our game.”

The Rockets (15-2) were originally scheduled to open SCC action on the road last week at Centerville before a heat wave caused that match to be postponed. No. 5 (2A) EBF will make up that conference road trip to face the Redettes tonight at Lakeview Gymnasium.
